In this paper, we study thermal buoyancy, the electromagnetic force and forced convection in a conventional radio frequency (RF) furnace for growing large-sized (4-inch) silicon carbide ingots using the top-seeded solution method. The thermal buoyancy and electromagnetic force are analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively under real working conditions, and a method to increase the growth stability of large-sized (4-inch) SiC is proposed through the study of forced convection.
